Fascial Stretch Therapy

FASCIAL STRETCH THERAPY (FST)

What is FST?

FST is a form of table-based assisted stretching that focuses on the fascia and joint capsule to achieve optimal strength, flexibility, pain relief and performance. It is a pain-free method of stretching, typically performed on a massage table, that can provide almost instant results.

What is fascia?

Fascia is the connective tissue system of the body that penetrates through and wraps around muscles, nerves, organs and just about everything else in the body.

Why stretch fascia vs muscle?

Fascia surrounds and connects each muscle to tendons, ligaments and bones to form a network of support to your entire body.  Focusing on just stretching the muscle is limited in benefit and does not last. Stretching the fascia can improve blood flow, which in turn helps to reduce the amount of tension in your muscles. It is excellent for recovering from exercise or athletic events, and helps to remove toxins, giving you more energy and allowing more oxygen into your body.

What Are the Major Benefits of Fascial Stretch Therapy?

  • Reduction or elimination of stress.
  • Decreased joint aches and pains.
  • Greater balance and flexibility.
  • Improved posture and mobility.
  • Shorter recovery times after exercise sessions.
  • Increased blood flow to exhausted muscles.

What is the cost?

Sessions are 55 minutes long and $115 per session.
